You'll Soon Be Able to Pay Parking Fee Through Whatsapp

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has revealed an exciting collection of projects and smart initiatives it will showcase at GITEX 2021 topped by projects qualified for the finals of the Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport 2021.

The portfolio of projects and initiatives include the use of artificial intelligence in the testing of vehicles together with a new model of a journey planner on public buses using smart screens at bus stations. 

During GITEX, visitors of RTA’s stand will be introduced to the smart technology to use for paying parking fees. The smart parking app has recently been fitted with innovative features for the payment of fees such as a 3D map, and the automatic renewal of parking tickets as well as the payment of parking fees through WhatsApp as an alternative to the text message service.

Users will be required to send the same information that they text on 7275 with the amount deducted from their parking wallet.

A reminder will also be sent 20 minutes before the expiry of the ticket.

Additionally, RTA will show a host of other services that enable customers to automatically pay parking fees at the smart yards and multi-level parking buildings.

RTA will also exhibit a smart scanning device that can issue digital fine tickets. Visitors will also be familiarised with RTA’s initiatives in using artificial intelligence at vehicle technical testing centres to detect any malpractices..

RTA will also exhibit digital nol through the nol Pay app, that is interfaced with Huawei smart devices and enables users to pay for public transport fares, and nol card purchase outlets across Dubai besides topping up smart cards and purchasing transport permits.
